1. Diary question

Hiya could you tell me step-by-step how to solve this question:

2. What is the volume of the milk crate?

What is the volume of the space in the vehicle?

3. Volume of the milk crate is 40000cm (400 metres)
Volume of the space is 3200000cm (32 000 metres)

What next?

4. Now just divide $\frac{3,200,000}{40,000}= ......$

What next?
Please ... don't do that again: You can't measure a volume by a unit of length.

1. Volume of the milk crate: $V_{mc} = 50 cm \cdot 40 cm \cdot 20 cm = 40,000 cm^3$

2. Volume of the space on the vehicle: $V_{sv} = 2 m \cdot 1.6 m \cdot 1 m = 3.2 m^3$

3. You have to convert the units to use the values in the following calculations. Since $1 m^3 = 1,000,000 cm^3$ you'll get $V_{sv} = 3,200,000 cm^3$

4. And now you can check by division how many crates fit into the space on the vehicle. (See p0oint's calculation)
